2. Beginner Piriformis Stretch

Sitting with your back straight and core muscles engaged, place your feet on the floor in front of you at hip-width apart. Bring our right ankle up and rest it just above your left knee. Place your right hand on your right knee and push it away from you. For a stronger stretch, you can use both hands to push your knee away, but be careful not to twist your body as you bring your left hand across. Hold for 30-60 seconds and repeat each side 2-3 times. Remember to breathe through the stretch and return to the start position when changing legs.
